Earlyish Thu (1700)

Level - blue/red

Ride will set off earlier than usual but will be much the same ride as the later ones. Main paths, with some single track. A few technical bits but avoidable/walkable.

Time - 2-3 hrs

Limited to 10 to facilitate enjoyment and try and reduce impact on the trails.

Route will be dependent on the conditions - some of the WHW, Carbeth, Carglas, Water Works, Dougalston etc.

Should get about an hour and a half of daylight but LIGHTS REQUIRED as wont be back until after dark.

Easy-ish paced, suit those wanting a decent work out, and some good honest exercise.

As always, safety is your own responsibility, so check bike before coming out, bring suitable clothing and make sure you wear a helmet, bring a first aid kit if you have one.

Check site on day in case weather dictates a cancellation. And please update RSVP if you can't make it.

Any questions/issues post on here and someone will answer!

This ride sets off at 5pm from usual place, north end of station car park.

    I'm heading out with Andy on the beginners ride now as there are a few new girlies going and I don't want the evil boys scaring them off ;)

    Didn't think earlier rides would be so popular. I can't do any the week starting 25th tho, so yeah someone else should do some earlyish rides if the demand is there. 5pm is gd for me most weeks. Due to the crazy shifts I work I can't always make the later ones.
